Friendship Card



My Friendship card for the month of August was especially created for Annalie 
whom lives in South Africa.

postage strikes although I am forever grateful that it did arrive as 
I forgot to place a stamp on it :(  amazingly it still got delivered.
Pattern by Sjaak CO-FP-014.
Decoupage by Ann's Paper Art, many of the decoupages can also be purchased by 
Cardmaking Online which is in Australia.
